Installing the CPU Block - EK Supreme
Here we have an Intel socket 775 motherboard - Asus P5K
Push the M4 bolts through from the underside of the motherboard, ensure you fit the metal washers FIRST and then the paper washers, this keeps the metal washers from making contact with the PCB.
Tighten up the M4 nuts, ensure the paper washers are in place to avoid any possible short circuits
Apply TIM to waterblock - see this thread for application methods
Push the springs onto the bolts and screw down with the thumbnuts.
Note: Use of a backplate is recommended, it helps prevent the mounting hardware from warping the motherboard and provides the CPU block with better surface contact.

even using the backplate warping can still happen, so be careful.

I guess I have couple of options, grind the screws (may not then be easy to remove in future) or put 2 or 3 washers at the top. Given that it was sealed when it arrived I'm not keen to remove the screws. Any advice?

I'm very new to this forum so not that great at adding pics but I believe this link should illustrate the problem. Essentially the four black screws that hold the block to the copper base are sticking out too much. Apologies if I've not described this clearly enough before. Many thanks.
